Course Summary

Course overview

Accounting and finance are central to managing organisations effectively. This course integrates accounting, leadership and change, and gives you a practical insight into developing the discipline. It also provides you with a firm knowledge of accounting and finance and the adaptability needed in a rapidly changing environment.

This course is distinctive in its focus on using financial skills in organisations. You develop hard and soft accounting skills as well as the interpersonal skills necessary to work effectively in the challenging business environment.

If you already hold a professional accounting qualification such as ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW, you only need to undertake two modules to complete the award - Current Issues in Accounting and Research, and the Accounting Dissertation.

Top 3 reasons to study accounting and finance with us:

  • Industry input: we work with brands including Coca-Cola, Apple, Adobe, Microsoft, KPMG, Ernst & Young, and Johnson & Johnson to give you experience of working with global organisations.
  • Entrepreneurial opportunities: our students have created 500 new business start-ups through Launchpad and Microbiz – a start-up community who provide support and advice for students looking to start a new business venture.
  • United Nations’ PRME initiative – we’re a proud signatory of the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, which aims to globally raise the profile of sustainability and responsible leadership to equip current and future leaders with the skills to deliver positive change for business and society.

How you learn

You work independently and with the support of peers and tutors in tutorials, seminars, directed exercises and IT-based activities.

How you are assessed

Assessment methods vary according to the module studied and include formal examinations, in-course work and presentations.

Career opportunities

Graduates can expect to be employed in areas within industry, accounting practices or the public sector. The degree provides a good stepping stone to training for a career in accountancy or a role in general management, and also provides those seeking positions in the finance industry with both specialist finance knowledge and the necessary level of understanding of accounting.

Modules

This module explores the development of accounting thought in selected aspects of the discipline of accounting. It identifies the range of research strategies and techniques that are adopted to investigate topical accounting issues and places these explorations in a theoretical framework that helps to explain and illustrate the process of research. Specifically, it will prepare you to undertake research in the discipline and provide the skills required progress to pursue the Accounting Dissertation. You are assessed by a combination of the collation of a portfolio exploring a selection of accounting issues and the submission of a research proposal.
